Tracie created a mysterious cityscape that integrates with the 3D watch display towers in the Ted Baker & Moore store on Commercial Street, London. The colours and lighting make it feel like a surreal night scene from a dark comic that fit with Ted Baker’s sharp style and fun approach to all their visuals.

"Mark maker & illustrator. I like to deal with contemporary social issues and love to make work that contains slight dark humour."
"I'm originally from Lincolnshire but have Irish and Scottish family. I now live and work in Birmingham. My inspiration comes from reading books. The last book I read was The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. A brilliant book.
I love illustrators such as Laura Carlin, Ralph Steadman, Luke Best. There's far too many to mention. I used to collect starwars figures, but I've grown out of it. I dont have any room to collect things. I have a spare room but I've turned into a makeshift studio.
Increased blood pressure and/or heart rate during phenterminehealth.com therapy is a reason to reduce the dose of the drug and even cancel it."
Beer brands don't get bigger than Budweiser, so when they approached Malika Favre and asked her to design their limited edition summer packaging, she jumped at the chance. The all American brief, saw Malika taking on the iconic lady Liberty in her signature bold, minimalist vector style. The results are so good they just make us want to grab a beer.
We love this artwork Fortuna Todisco created for Panorama Magazine. This fabulous illustration accompanied an article about Fortuna's career and her creative processes and aspirations.
Fortuna studied at the European Institute of Design and has since worked as both a fashion designer and an illustrator. She is inspired by the people around her and loves to express her observations through her illustrations. Fortuna creates both conceptual and representational artworks and has worked with a variety of clients for fashion and lifestyle commissions.
Maguma creates a beautifully crafted conceptual illustration for Panenka Magazine.
The article in issue #42 of the Spanish magazine discusses how the literature of different countries can influence the way people play football. An interesting link made all the better by Maguma's full page artwork.
The mural on the wall is on the outside of the brewery Twisted Barrel Ale. It's a new brewery which has just opened up in Coventry. The imagery on the wall was drawn from an open brief- they wanted a representation of Coventry. Stewart chose to use the story of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom to depict for the wall painting.
Prior to the bombing during the blitz, Coventry was a real pretty city with a vast amount of Tudor buildings. After the war the council pulled what was left down with a view of rebuilding it and making it a modern town - but it was never finished. As a reference to this Stewart have drawn lots of tudor style buildings based on the remaining ones in Coventry.
The labels design was once again an open brief, though Stewart needed to have connections with Coventry.
On the label design you will see the Tudor buildings, Coventry's three spires, doves (as a reference to Coventry being a city of peace and reconciliation). I drew a lad and a lass in celebration of the tag line 'more folk than punk' from the brewery.
